Zoladex injections for endometriosis treatment

Tara was diagnosed with endometriosis following laparoscopy surgery and was then put on zoladex injections but this has given her side-effects and she feels really moody all the time

This is Tara's story ..... 

My name is Tara. I am 20 years old. For the last 2 1/2 years I have been suffering a HUGE number of symptoms. It was causing aches in my lower area that hurt so bad I could not even barely walk. I went in for a ultrasound and the doctor told me that they found a cyst on my ovary.


So the next couple months I had the pain still there, and it was getting worse and worse every day, leading from my lower area, to my legs.


One day I had so much agony I had to go to the doctor. I went into one office and they told me that it was just the cyst causing the problem so they gave me medication, and 1 week later I was still not feeling any better so I went and got a second opinion and the doctor told me it sounded like I had endometriosis.


They scheduled me a appointment with my gyno, and told him my symptoms and he told me I was going to have to get a laparoscopy to see if I had the disease.


I got my Laparoscopy and it turns out that I do have Endometriosis. I have to get a shot in the stomach of Zoladex every month for 6 months.


When I found out I was very upset. To hear that I had a disease that would probably never be cured without a hysterectomy. I never thought I would be dealing with this because having children is my dream, and knowing there may be a chance that I can't really breaks my heart.


I even ended up having a miscarriage a couple months ago not even knowing I was pregnant at all. Not only is knowing what could happen bad but the pain effects everything in my life. Ever since I started having pain and found out what is wrong with me everything has changed.


I am constantly thinking about pain, I am a bartender so it affects my work mood and makes it hard to walk around for a long period of time, and it makes me just miserable.

It's so bad that I wake up in the middle of a dead sleep cuz I feel this stabbing pain in my lower area. The only thing that it hasn't caused is problems with sexual intercourse. I got the shot about a week ago, and I still have a lot of symptoms.


My mood is pretty bad I just don’t want to be around anybody because I feel like I will rip their head off. The dumbest things make me mad, and I can't stand talking to anybody. That's the only symptom I have received so far but then again it's only been a week. I hope I get better and can just live a normal life.
